The game quieted down quite a bit after the second, with neither team getting more than one base runner on at a time. Corban Joseph hit a solo shot to center in the fourth, but that was all the Yankees could manage, despite the bullpen putting together a solid 7.1 innings of relief work. In the end, Pawtucket took the 7-1 victory, winning the series three games to one and earning a date with the Charlotte Knights in the Championship round of the Governor’s Cup.
Vidal Nuno: Nuno lasted just 1.2 innings and gave up seven runs on seven hits, a walk and a strike out.
The Offense: The Yankees only managed two hits against their old teammate, Nelson Figueroa, who went eight strong innings. Kevin Russo, Ronnier Mustelier and Luke Murton each went 0-4.
Kelvin Perez: After Nuno was pulled with two outs in the second, Perez threw a strong 3.1 innings for the Yankees. He gave up two hits and struck out four.
Jon Meloan/Francisco Rondon: Both pitched two hitless innings and gave up one walk. Meloan struck out two and Rondon struck out one.
Corban Joseph: Joseph went 1-4 with a solo homer, which proved to be the Yankees whole offensive output. Ramiro Pena had the Yankees only other hit (and hit .357 for the series).
